Rob Greig is the Director of Judging. He’s “kneedeep in kilometres of gas lines and beer lines and heaven knows what else” as he enthuses about his very diverse world.
And are the beers as exotic as their coutries of origin? “Oh goodness me, exotic is not the word,” replies the beer judge, “there are actually 39 different classes.” He continues with the example of chocolate cherry stout: “(it’s) a little like a Cherry Ripe in a bottle,” he explains. What’s more, he likes it.
